Synopsis

  • Watch a video
The music came back up and the next group of little girls, slightly older, came out. There was a lot of that in the next hour and change. I liked dance, and it was no reflection on the kids, but my will to live began to seep away on about the fifth group of sequined children...

Anita Blake is back in St. Louis and trying to live a normal life-as normal as possible for someone who is a legal vampire executioner and a U. S. Marshal. There are lovers, friends and their children, school programs to attend. In the midst of all the ordinary happiness a vampire from Anita's past reaches out. She was supposed to be dead, killed in an explosion, but the Mother of All Darkness is the first vampire, their dark creator. It's hard to kill a god. This dark goddess has reached out to her here-in St. Louis, home of everyone Anita loves most. The Mother of All Darkness has decided she has to act now or never, to control Anita, and all the vampires in America.

The Mother of All Darkness believes that the triumvirate created by master vampire Jean-Claude with Anita and the werewolf Richard Zeeman has enough power for her to regain a body and to immigrate to the New World. But the body she wants to possess is already taken. Anita is about to learn a whole new meaning to sharing her body, one that has nothing to do with the bedroom. And if the Mother of All Darkness can't succeed in taking over Anita's body for herself, she means to see that no one else has the use of it, ever again. Even Belle Morte, not always a friend to Anita, has sent word: "Run if you can..."

Anytime a new Anita Blake book comes out I'm immensely happy and I was happy with this book as well. I don't quite think that Laurell K. Hamilton should be categorized as "Romance" though, maybe paranormal romance because while there is plenty of her usual overt sexuality, Anita Blake also kicks some major butt. The only thing about this book is that you would think that the Mother of All Darkness would lead to some major bad-ass-ery in order to take her down and the way the situation is handled is less bad ass than you would expect. I still enjoy every Anita Blake book and I look at them as her journey through her life and her very complex relationships and this book is another stop along the way.
